    I would be surprised if anyone under the age of 25 would score anything. I think that RE or Divinity as it was known has generally been dropped as a subject.

    I'm 30 and I remember doing RE at school but it was a mix of a lot of religions (although the never covered anything Pagan / Wiccan which they still don't as far as I am aware). But it was like one hour a week and once we took our options at 13/14 you didn't get RE unless you specifically chose to do it.

    It was included in the same choice as Geography and History so it didn't get a very big intake.

    I always thought Geog and History were easy options. Measuring moraines in Cumbria was always going to be more fun than fiddling with iron filings in physics or pything about with Pythagoras.

    Wow I am still in first place for today haha! When I got 10/10 this morning I figured it must be really easy and everyone would get 10/10.

    If no one else plays today I might win one day lol.

    Congratulations to our new champion Mr Templedene who has broken Croggys extended run of victories.
    It was close at the top but consistency paid off

    A new month starts today and the crown is up for grabs

    Thank you, I managed not to miss a single day, doitlater has been useful!

    I think this month we will see a new champion though, from the stats I know I am not the best point scorer.

    There's a lesson in life there. Simplybeing the best is often no guarantee of winning.
    My school motto at Wyther Park was 'Perseverence' And that will take you to places that you would not believe possible.
    You persevered,you won.

    I thought I'd been really quick today, but oh no, there goes bewerley 10/10 5 seconds quicker.

    Dunno how you do it so fast :eek:

    I used to have a computer with a mouse which was slower.
    With an iPad it can be quicker but with my fat fingers I sometimes touch the wrong answer.

    Well done bewerley.

    Even though the Bible questions are repeated quite often it still trips me up. It's the one day I don't like doing the quiz.

    If you are interested you can be the quizmaster for the next month and can choose the categories. I will change Bible to something else in the meantime.

    Thanks! I'll look forward to the new category.

    I wouldn't mind a bash at quizmistress if you tell me how to gan on.

    The next time you log on you will see under your log in name 'administrator'
    Click on this for fuLl info.


    You may now change any of the question categories. I would caution that Sports and to some extent History are very USA based.
    You can change the categories as often as you wish.
    To hand over the Administrator role to another player simply follow the instructions in the Admin panel.
    You have control, good luck!

    Well done.

    The only problem is that all having the same question means that should anyone choose to have more than one go under different names then the results can be manipulated.
     
  19. Geordie exile

    Geordie exile New Member

    Yes. But think of the fun we can have guessing who's cheating if any 'new' names appear.

    I'll give them the 'look'. :icon_mad:

    Well I think this month is going to be a challenge, and interesting.

    Croggy has taken the lead, and could well re-take the winners crown
    GeordieExile is neck and neck with myself
    Bewerly has missed two days and is slipping back down the scores
    TheChaser is following up nicely
    FfordeGreene has always shown high average scores but doesn't show often enough
    nevben is putting in a solid performance
    Moleie has just made one showing this month.

    Early days yet, looking forward to see how this month plays out.
